US-1 at SR-610

COMPLETED JANUARY 2017

 
 

Jefferson Davis Highway - US-1 at Garrisonville Road - State Route 610 - Right Turn Lane
- Intersection of SR-610 and US-1 had a failing Level of Service (LOS) during peak afternoon traffic periods. Furthermore, US-1 serves as the primary alternate route for I-95 when backups occur on the interstate.  Improvements to intersection include additional right turn lanes from southbound US-1 to allow increased traffic movement west on Garrisonville Road. Preventing daily queing of traffic into the US-1 southbound travel lanes.
PROJECT SELECTION
- The Route 1/610 intersection was identified in a September 2014 Route 1 Corridor Study as the County’s highest-volume intersection
- Southbound Route 1 traffic turning onto Garrisonville Road is projected to increase an additional 50% in the next 20 years
PROJECT FACTS
- Widen and improve 0.22 miles of Jefferson Davis Highway (Route 1)
- Extends from the intersection with the I-95 Northbound On-Ramp to the intersection with Garrisonville Road (Route 610)
- Total Project Cost: $800,000
- Provide an additional 14’ right turn lane with curb to direct drainage runoff
- Modify existing traffic signal for additional signal heads
- Improve traffic flow at the Route 1/610 intersection
- Relocate the Limited Access Fence for the I-95 exit ramp
- Traffic analysis indicated the additional turn lane reduces the approach delay to approximately 30 seconds as opposed to 3 minutes
